2008 Geoff Merrill Botham Merrill Willis Chardy

12 x 750ml Bottles
Cracka Review
Geoff Merrill with his straight talking style did plenty to get Australian wines on the world map over the last 20 years. And this Chardonnay certainly brings me back to the glory days with ripe tropical fruit flavours and some generous creamy oak. Pure sunshine in a glass!

Winemaker's Note
The colour is a light straw with green hues. The aroma is very varietal, showing nectarine, rockmelon, lime and fresh cucumber with subtle and well integrated oak characters of lightly toasted cashews and vanilla cream. The palate is wonderfully rounded and filling, yet the underlying structure is tight and refreshing. Complex flavours of melon, lemon and stone fruits fill the mid palate blended with hints of creamy vanilla toasted oak and finishing on a fresh fruit note.

Geoff Merrill Wine Reviews and Accolades

"There are aromas of cream, toast, and peach on the nose. Generous and rich palate, with some stone fruit and cashew notes. Overall a style that has softness and generosity, but without being overblown, some vanillin notes also showing through. Well integrated and easy drinking style." - David LeMire MW

Other Reviews
Complexity of honeyed melon and oak aromas, with similar flavours balanced by nice acidity.
